by: FIBA
BAHÍA BLANCA (DIRECTV Liga Sudamericana 2016) - Mogi das Cruzes defeated Weber Bahía 84-81, in an emotional third match that needed the full forty minutes to be defined, to be crowned Champio of the DIRECTV Liga Sudamericana 2016. Brazil swept the series 3-0 to claim the Horacio Muratore Cup. Shamell Stallworth was named the MVP of the competition.

It was a competitive match from the start. Mogi found quick aim from long distance and scored 5 of 8 3-pointers in the first quarter against a Bahia team that was led by Anthony Johnson, who scored 7 points at the start. Mogi had a 4-point lead, 24-20, at the end of the first ten minutes of game.

In the second quarter, Bahía responded with a great performance from the bench, especially Maximo Fjellerup who electrified the Osvaldo Casanova stadium with two dunks that increased the advantage to eight, 44-36, at the end of the first half. Tyrone Curnell and Shamell Stallworth were instrumental in keeping the Brazilian club in the game, combining for 19 points and 7 rebounds, while Bahia was led by Johnson who continued a great individual performance with 10 points and 3 rebounds.

Mogi adjusted in the third quarter and took advantage against an erratic Bahia that allowed the opponents return to the game. The trio of Curnell, Shamell and an important contribution from veteran pivot Caio Torres allowed him to close the third quarter down by three points 65-62.

In the last quarter, Mogi repeated the dose and with a three-pointer from Shamell with 1:18, that gave an advantage to the team from Brazil, 82-79. Bahia’s youth came into effect in the final stretch of the game with a turnover by Lucio Redivo. Mogi took the win and claimed the 2016 DIRECTV Liga Sudamericana. The Brazilian club raised the Horacio Muratore Cup and Shamell took the Most Valuable Player award.

"A great edition has ended. We congratulate Mogi das Cruzes for its conquest and Weber Bahía for an excellent performance and having given an example of what it is to be a high-level organization, executing a very beautiful award ceremony and a beautiful final. We hope the basketball lovers have enjoyed this beautiful celebration from both teams and we will see everybody at the 2017 DIRECTV Liga Sudamericana.", concluded Geramise Bozikis, President of the South American Basketball Association (ABASU).
